We've just heard from Michelle at the Centre Voluntary Services in St Albans. Michelle comes into the studio each month to talk about the voluntary services in St Albans and update us on what's happening.
Michelle pointed out that in the recent snowy weather, many people haven't been able to get out. Organisations such as the Good Neighbours Scheme and Harpenden Helping Hand are examples of groups that you can get involved in to help those who are in need.
Michelle also mentioned that if you're looking to do something healthy this year you could join the Countryside Management Service - they're looking for people to lead health walks.
We were also told about the benefits on volunteering, particulary in this economic climate where some people are struggling to find work. Volunteering is a great way to try something different and a chance to for people to get some great experience.
